Blue bats fall short

Specialto the Daily
TOLEDO - Mark Schweitzer belted
a pair of home runs, and Toledo pit-
chers Stan Clarke and Mark Van Horn
kept Michigan's bats silent for six in-
nings yesterday, as the Rockets
defeated the Wolverines, 7-4, in a nine-
inning non-conference game at Lucas
County Stadium.
The Blue batsmen tallied all their
runs in the seventh inning and took a 4-3
lead before Toledo, led by Schweitzer's
second homer of the game, scored four
times to go ahead for good. Schweitzer
had earlier blasted a round-tripper in
the fifth to give the Rockets a 2-0 lead.
the Wolverine first run, but Michigan
was held hitless by Clarke and Van
Horn until they exploded in the seventh.
In that frame, Jim Paciorek reached
first on an error, then scored when
designated hitter Gerry Hool stroked a
double which sailed just inside the bag
at third. Lefthander John Foster took
the mound and promptly yielded a two-
run single to catcher John Young, and
Young advanced to second when Tom

Fredal walked. Shortstop Tony Evans
then singled Young home to tie the
game at 4-4.
However; a mixup in signals proved
to be costly for the Wolverines on the
same play. As Young was headed
home, Evans attempted to leg out a
second base on the throw. But Coach
Bud Middaugh had instructed Fredal to
remain on second. The Rockets ended
the confusion by flagging down Evans
in a rundown between first and second.
TIM KARAZIM, who took over from
starter Dave Nuss in the sixth, absor-
bed the loss, his second against one win.
John Foster, the third Rocket hurler of
the afternoon, picked up the win and ex-
tended his record to 7-4.
The Wolverines dropped to 30-14-1
overall with the loss. They play a non-
conference doubleheader against the
University of Detroit at Fisher
Stadium, with game at 1 p.m.
FOUL TIPS: The batsmen finally
found themselves in the top spot this
week in the state baseball poll. U-D,
had held the top spot for several weeks.

By The AssociatedPress
The United States campaign to enlist
support for its boycott of the Moscow
Olympics was dealt a severe blow
yesterday when France, one of the
leaders in Western Europe, decided to
attend the Summer Games.
Claude Collard, president of the
French Olympic Committee, said the
committee's vote to attend the Games
was unanimous and based strictly on
sports considerations and not on
political motives.
"The athletes are in a very difficult
psychological state and our decision
was very much influenced by the con-
cern we have for their morale," Collard
said. "We refuse that our athletes be
used for political ends."
Collard said the decision was made
after consultation with all the sports
federations in France. He said 17 of the
federations had voted in favor of par-
ticipation, four wanted to delay the
decision and two were opposed to going.
Even more important than France to
President Carter's boycott strategy is
West Germany, which is expected to
make its decision Thursday. Last week,
the presidium to West Germany's
National Olympic Committee recom-
mended a boycott.
The deadline for accepting in-
vitations to Moscow is May 24.
Other nations yet to reach a decision
on the boycott are Israel, Spain, South
Korea, Turkey and Uruguay.
However, Israel took a step toward
joining the boycott forces when a
parliamentary committee, the Knesset
Sports Committee, recommended
yesterday that its athletes stay home.
The Israeli Olympic Committee is to
meet May 22 and make a final decision.
The committee adopted a resolution
calling for Israel to1bycott the games.

At the same time, the resolution ap-
pealed to the United States to help
prevent future boycotts similar to those
Israeli athletes have often faced.
"This recommendation will be placed
before the members," committee
member Shmuel Lalkin said. "But I
don't know what the impact will be.
"You cannot ignore it altogether, but
we'll have to wait," he said.
The decision to attend or boycott the
Games must be passed by a two-thirds
majority of the committee's 24 mem-
bers, Lalkin said, but he would not
predict the outcome of the vote. "It's
very narrow. It's a hard case."
Prime Minister Menachem Begin has
said Israel should support the boycott.
One nation which will go to Moscow is
the new African country of Zimbabwe,
formerly the British colony of
Rhodesia. The International Olympic
Committee admitted Zimbabwe into
the Olympic family yesterday.
"It's a great day," said Frank Lin-
coln, president of the Zimbabwe Olym-
pic Committee.
"The International Olympic Commit-
tee is instructing the Moscow
Organizing Committee to send us an in-
vitation and we will certainly accept."
The Carter administration was pic-
tured as "extremely disappointed"
Tuesday by the French Olympics
committee's decision to go to the
Moscow Games. It remained hopeful,
however, that other U.S. allies in
Europe would support President Car-
ter's position, said Jane Wales, a
spokeswoman for the State Depar-
Another source, who asked not to be
identified, said administration
strategists had hoped the French would
postpone their vote until after the West
German committee meets on Thursday

because it was hoped the German vote
might influence the French.
"Our hope was really for a delay,"
the source said. "We knew if they voted
today they would vote to go."
Asked if the French vote was likely to
influence the Germany committee
members, who now know they would
not be the only Western European
nation sending a team, the source said:
"That is a risk. The German vote is
the most significant because many
nations have said, they would follow
Germany. No other nation said it would
follow France."
